    This post may go over like a lead zepplin, but I'm going to try anyway. I just recently found out about the VLC app, and wanted to download it, but alas, it's been pulled from the app store. As much as I consider myself to be up on the recent apps that are out, obviously we can't all be aware of every app... After all, there ARE days where I dont check the appstore or come on Macrumours. This isnt the first time I've missed an app cos it's been pulled.

    I also feel like there are quite a few ppl on this forum who are tech savvy enough to know when they find an app that might get pulled. Sooooo... My thought is that we could use this thread to keep track of such apps, so that more ppl would get a chance to get them before they're pulled. Someone could just pop in and say " I downloaded xyz app today, it does such and such, but I think Apple might pull it, so grab it while you can". Then ppl could check the thread, to see if there are any apps they might need to get asap.

    Good idea? Let me know.

    I like the idea. Why does Apple pull apps, aside from obvious (like the recent Gay healing app)? A twitter app I used a lot was pulled and I didn't get that..

    The VLC app was pulled for violating the GPL (well, the app store's TOS violates it). IDK how common things like that are.

    A thread for something like this would be nice, but usually if an app makes it to notorious status, people start separate ones about them.
